2018 Topps Now - #617 - Kershaw 2nd Fastest Dodger to 150 Wins

For a split second I thought Topps would issue an Immaculate inning card for Dodgers reliever Zac Rosscup, but that was not meant to be. I suppose they feared a lack of sales would hamper that card. Instead, we get to enjoy a Clayton Kershaw card that celebrates his 150th career win. See it above and below. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger insider:
“It was a good day,” Kershaw said. “That first inning we get five like that early, it’s imperative you go out there, you want to have quick innings and get guys back in the dugout. (There’s) even more of an emphasis on that when guys are swinging the bats like they did today. It’s go right after guys and get quick outs.”
Go here to check it out and order. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Clayton Kershaw picked up his 15oth career win becoming the seventh player in franchise hisroty to hit that mark. Kershaw became the 2nd-fastest Dodgers pitcher to 150 career wins, by games. The lefty picked up the win in his 311th career appearance only behinf Dazzy Vance who achieved the feat in his 282nd appearance.
